Submission Guidelines

Teachers, professors, and parents are invited to submit posts for publication.  Submissions should range from 250 – 750 words and be related to our purpose.  Posts should be written for an audience of parents and teachers.

Authors are required to secure necessary permissions to post student work, images of students, or school and teacher names; submission of the manuscript indicates the author has secured these permissions.

To submit a post for review, send a copy of the post to  We prefer submissions via Google Docs but will accept email attachments in Microsoft Word.  The submission file should be named [Author Last Name_Title of Post].  Please include

  • a title and byline
  • a 1-2 sentence bio
  • an image that relates to the content of the post.  All images should be original to the author or include copyright permissions or the appropriate Creative Commons license.  Images should be shared as .jpg via Google drive (preferably) or attached to the email as a separate file with a file name of [Author Last Name_Title of Post].

Authors retain copyright to their work, and, in fact, we encourage authors to consider their posts as single entries into extended conversations on their topics. We hope that authors will revise and expand their work and resubmit it to other publications that contribute to public discourse about writing in schools.

Deadlines for submission:  To be considered for review, the manuscript must be received by the 15th of the month (January – October). We review submissions each month, typically with 4-8 week turnaround from submission review to publication.
